Distracted by my Stash

Alluring stacks of fabric are always beckoning me.
A couple weeks ago, I received a lovely bundle from LittleMushroomCap, and was inspired by Amira's BOM QAL to make Lucky Penny, a Churn Dash Block. He has been hanging out, screaming for some company, until at last I dropped everything and went nuts with the rotary to provide some pals. So, another scrappy in the works! That 12th, missing block is in ICU - upgraded to 'recovery' this morning after removing stitches.
I have a 6" block in mind to draw up and audition as cornerstones.
I did manage to whip up hundreds of HSTs for Ty's Quilt prior to the big distraction.
And I found a couple yummy fabrics to add to it.
I happened upon these when picking up needles at JoAnn's. I actually forgot the name and only bought the minimum (!). They were located right underneath the new line by Juliana Horner. Two of those snuck home with me as well..
Which prompted yet another starter pile...
Linking up with Freshly pieced  for  WIP Wednesday!
I am taking a break from piecing today to return to some FMQ.
Finally, I made a decision for the next part of Hugs & Kisses...
Preview for Friday...

  3. Churn dash blocks are becoming my favorite traditional block. I love the simple lines and the way it lets the fabric talk. Lovely fabric! Makes me want to go visit a fabric store.

  4. Looks like you are having lots if fun with fabric play - the kind that comes before any cutting even. :)
